Abstract
The study aims to investigate the effectiveness of MELS in general biology lectures of students in the biology education program of Universitas Negeri Makassar. This pre-experimental study implemented One-Group Pretest-Posttest Design by involving one group of students to be given a pretest and a posttest. The independent variable of this research is the application of MELS, and the dependent variable is the learning achievement. The research instrument is a multiple choice test. The data collection technique is done through pre-test before the implementation of MELS and post-test after the implementation of MELS. Data analysis techniques are descriptive statistical analysis and inferential statistical analysis with t-test and normalized gain test. The average of students’ learning achievement on pretest and post-test is 29.61 and 78.45, respectively. The average gain score of students’ learning achievement was 0.72. The result of SPSS posttest analysis showed that t count = 5.963 (db = 66) and p = 0.000, meanwhile the value of the t distribution table ( 0.95; df = 66) = 1.78, which means that the posttest result average is greater than the class mastery criteria. Gain value of students’ learning achievement showed that t count = 22.612 (db = 66) and p = 0.000, meanwhile the value of t distribution table (0.95; df = 66) = 1.78, which means that the average value of unrealized gain is greater than 0.3 (0.6790 = medium category).
